Lanhydrock

Recommended
Just the place to immerge oneself in the daily life of a fabulously wealthy late-Victorian family, the vast Lanhydrock Estate encompasses public gardens (cycle paths), private gardens and a huge country house that has been restored in the style of the time. The 50 rooms almost come back to life, so painstakingly have the furnishings, textiles and everyday items been set out. The layout of the premises gives an idea of the social and sexual hierarchy in effect at the time. Instructive.
